Having seen Jed play over the course of a weekend in September, the Good to Great tennis academy team have now invited Jed to Sweden. The academy have offered to reduce the cost of their programme in order to give Jed this opportunity.
However, the cost of this life changing experience is still slightly out of reach financially. Therefore, Jed would be extremely grateful for any support.
This has come around very quickly and Jed has to arrive in Stockholm by March. It is an amazing achievement for Jed as he has trained outside with his Dad and sisters in all weathers and last year he only trained indoor twice when courts were available during christmas.
Jed has not recieved any structure or support from the LTA or Tennis Scotland all the way through his teens and has still managed to get to a high level in the sport. Jed has done it on his own, including winning scottish indoor championships, reaching No1 in Scotland and No7 in the UK rankings and beating many of the top players who are supported and breaking through.
Magnus Norman and the team said that Jed had a great base to work from. Also, they liked his work ethic and attitude both on and off court which is why they want him back to analyse him for a bit longer.
Magnus said: "It was an absolut honor to spend some time with you. Your passion for the game is second to none. We really hope that you will fulfill all your dreams in your life. Looking at the tennis I think you are a strong lad. Moving really good and an explosive player. Also playing points really well. The serve is powerful. Still too early to say anything more as we need to watch you play and to have you a longer period to be able to judge more and to give more input. However I really liked the way you played!"
